This large-scale paper installation is made up of images that were found on the internet, printed out, then cut and reassembled to form an overwhelming geometric landscape. Standing back and viewing the piece all at once, baroque and psychedelic patterns emerge that appear beautiful yet also destabilizing. Up close, the images pixelate and the materials of computer paper and staples reveal themselves for what they are: this is a configured idea of an environment made up of stockpile images that could easily be desktop backgrounds. When placed all together, however, they form an eerie, sublime, and attractive nature that captures the peaceful moment of time that preludes disaster.
